Visual Studio 2015 Installation Failure due Team Explorer component install Failure

No votes yet

Recently I faced a difficulty, couldn't install Visual Studio 2015 in one of the machine even after multiple retries (even after fresh install) due to team explorer component installation failure (please see image below), while the same setup was working in other PCs.

After googling for solution, I got a tip from site indicating that the issue may be due to incorrect visual C++ 2015 redistributable dll files priorly installed. I uninstalled Visual C++ redistributable setups and downloaded new x86 and x64 2015 VC++ redistributable setup files from microsoft and installed them.

Also I could find from control panel "Control Panel>All Control Panel Items>Programs and Features", two separate instances of microsoft Visual Studio 2015 program were installed. After a bit struggle I uninstalled both of them with the help of Revo Uninstaller.

After this reinstalled the Visual Studio 2015 with same setup and installation got successful completely.
